IN a bizarre exchange on social media, former British middleweight champion Chris Eubank Jnr called out current WBC cruiserweight king Tony Bellew.

Earlier this month Bellew moved up to heavyweight and upset David Haye, stopping the former two-weight champion in 11 rounds.

At the start of February Eubank Jnr stopped Renold Quinlan on ITV’s first ever pay-per-view show, winning the spurious IBO ‘world’ super-middleweight title in the process. In a recent interview with Sky Bet, Bellew took aim at Eubank’s belt, which is not recognised as a legitimate world title.
